Tour de Brew QC



Distance - 35 optional miles

Tour de Brew QC is a 35 (optional) mile bicycle ride in the Quad Cities along the Mississippi River Trail in both Iowa and Illinois. The Inaugural ride was organized in 2014 to raise awareness and support for cancer patients and their families. Profits from last year benefitted the LIVESTRONG Foundation that gives back to our community through programs such as LIVESTRONG at the YMCA and Gilda's Club. With your support, we also gave to Camp Kesem/Augustana Chapter, sending kids that have parents with Cancer to camp for one week in the summer and helped fund S.A.M.'s (Sharing America's Marrow) journey as they traveled to 50 states swabbing Bone Marrow Donors. This year we are bringing back the LiveSTRONG Foundation & Camp Kesem/Augustana while we add a new local charity, The NormaLeah Ovarian Cancer Initiative. 
Round 3 of Tour de Brew QC will be Refreshed by Traveler Beer Company. Packet pick-up/pre-party at Bleyart's Tap Friday May 6th from 4-7. First 300 pre-registered riders receive a free stainless steel Tour de Brew QC/Traveler's pint glass & lots of great swag that you don't want to miss out on!

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
No age requirement, as there will be food & non-alcoholic beverage options as well as festivities that would be fun for all ages. However, that ID might come in handy for some.

What can/can't I bring to the event?
Bring preregistration verification to packet pick-up, Bicycle, Helmet (recommended), $$ for stops and after party raffle/silent auction
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions? or message through our facebook page
